GAZA, PALESTINE, March 30, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently completed another year of refills to 300 water tanks situated in various camps in the Gaza Strip that provide clean, potable water to the area’s residents.

Each tank provides access to free, clean water to approximately 50 individuals, or 7 families, throughout the year, for an estimated 15,000 total beneficiaries. Because the tanks are public and anyone in the area can access the tanks, this number may be higher, according to Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal.  

“Access to clean, safe water is a basic human right,” said Sohail. “These 300 donor-funded tanks provide water to people who would otherwise have to drink or wash with contaminated water, which makes so many people here sick.” 

Baitulmaal operates the tanks in the following locations:

  • North governorate: (Beit Hanoun, Jablia Camp, Abraj Al Nada) 
  • Gaza governorate: (Moghraqa, Al Zatoon) 
  • Middle governorate: (Al Brouk, Um Dhair, Al Maghazi camp, Al Sawarha, Al Zawiada, Wadi Al Salqa, Deir Al Balah camp, Al Buraij refugees, Al Nusierat camp, Joher Al Diek)
  • Khanyounis governorate: (Nahr Al Bared) 
  • Rafah governorate: (the Swedish Village, Al Mawasi)  

The tanks are refilled weekly, except during the summer when they are filled more frequently to keep up with higher demand.  

Water access and quality has been an area of high concern in Gaza, leading the UN to project that it would be “uninhabitable” by 2020. This thin strip of land, blockaded by Israel and Egypt, continues to suffer a water crisis that threatens its 2 million inhabitants. Experts estimate that 98% of groundwater is unfit to drink — often contaminated by sewage or highly salinated by seawater — and only 10 percent of Gazans have access to safe drinking water, according to the UN.  

Limited freshwater sources are often sold by unregulated private vendors at unaffordable costs to residents, further burdening impoverished families. For those who are able to buy water, UNICEF estimates that two-thirds of this water is already contaminated by the time it is delivered, putting families at greater risk of waterborne diseases either way. 

According to the latest figures by the UN, most Gazans have insufficient access to basic needs such as food, clean water, electricity and healthcare, and 1 million now live under the poverty line.

Baitulmaal provides food, water, medicine, healthcare, and other aid to people in Palestine. If you would like to learn more or contribute to these programs at Baitulmaal, please visit their website at Baitulmaal.org.

URGENT! Help Rohingya Impacted by Fires in Refugee Camps https://baitulmaal.org/urgent-help-rohingya-impacted-by-fires-in-refugee-camps/ Wed, 24 Mar 2021 20:31:30 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=89076

COX’S BAZAR, BANGLADESH, March 24, 2021 — This past Monday, a devastating fire ripped through a densely populated campsite on the border of Bangladesh that is home to thousands of Rohingya refugees. As of this morning, at least 15 people are dead while hundreds remain missing and an estimated 45,000 have been displaced.

This is the second such fire this year alone, and the largest one yet.

Many Rohingya have lost everything — again.

We have mobilized relief efforts on the ground in Bangladesh, providing food, shelter, clothing, hygiene kits, home items and other basic necessities to victims of the blaze, and need your support now.

Because the plight of the Rohingya has only become worse.

Considered one of the most persecuted minorities in the world, nearly a million Rohingya fled their native Rakhine State in Myanmar to escape genocide and seek refuge in the hills of Southern Bangladesh.

Years of apartheid-like conditions and violent ethnic cleansing drove people from their homes with only the clothes on their back. Harboring stories of mass murder, rape, and deliberate destruction, traumatized Rohingya settled in makeshift tents that have grown into blocks of camps along the Bangladeshi border. 

There are 34 such camps in Cox’s Bazar, many of which are identified by numbers, letters, or a combination of both. Rohingya in these camps face:

  • cholera outbreaks and other water-borne diseases
  • communicable diseases such as diarrhea, rashes, and lice
  • malnutrition and stunting in children (an estimated 30% of children under 5)
  • weather-related disasters such as floods and landslides, especially during monsoon seasons
  • high risk of campfires, such as one that destroyed over 500 shelters earlier this year and the recent blaze that tore through Balukhali camps 9, 10, 8E, and 8W 
  • displacement after such disasters — with little belongings and nowhere to go.

The Rohingya are in desperate need of your support.

Their situation in these camps after barely surviving with their lives when fleeing violence was already bleak. Overcrowding, lack of adequate sanitation facilities, minimal access to safe drinking water and overall poverty only heightened the risk of COVID-19 within the Rohingya community in the last year — and now, what little they had is gone in an instant.

Your generous donations have helped improve the lives of Rohingya in Bangladesh, such as installing an electric tubewell to provide clean water, providing nutritious meals, and delivering winter aid, but now, they need your support as they reel from a horrible blaze that decimated everything.

Please give today. Help restore their lives, and restore their hope!

17 Residential Buildings Rebuilt After Explosion in Lebanon https://baitulmaal.org/17-residential-buildings-rebuilt-after-explosion-in-lebanon/ Sat, 20 Mar 2021 13:00:00 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=89013

BEIRUT, LEBANON, March 20, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently rehabilitated 17 residential buildings housing over 60 Lebanese residents impacted by the deadly explosion in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020.

Construction crews replaced shattered windows, blown-out doors, and collapsed roofs in apartment buildings housing vulnerable populations before winter approached. Beneficiaries included families living under the poverty line whose homes sustained damage after the powerful blast. Among them were 13 elderly individuals, 2 female-headed households, 2 disabled persons, and 11 children. 

The rehabilitation project was the latest phase of relief efforts aimed at aiding victims of the blast, according to Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal. 

“Losing their homes during a pandemic was devastating for many families who already suffered from rising poverty and joblessness in Lebanon,” said Sohail. “Ensuring safe housing was a priority to help protect them from the elements.” 

Considered one of the strongest non-nuclear explosions in history, the blast rocked the city for miles, killing hundreds, injuring thousands, and leaving over 300,000 homeless. Baitulmaal coordinated relief efforts immediately after the blast, delivering food, water, and hygiene supplies in addition to clean-up efforts to remove debris from the streets. Medications and supplies were also distributed to hospitals in Beirut as part of Baitulmaal’s $686,000 emergency aid package.

Syrian Orphans, Refugee Families, Students Receive Winter Warmth https://baitulmaal.org/syrian-orphans-refugee-families-students-receive-winter-warmth/ Mon, 08 Mar 2021 14:00:00 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=88862
After surviving a bomb attack and finding shelter in a Turkish refugee camp, a Syrian girl admires her new shoes — a gift made possible by Baitulmaal donors.  Children suffer tremendously in conflict zones, and a donor can bring hope where it is in short supply.

URFA, TURKEY, March 8, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently delivered winter essentials to 85 Syrian refugee families and 190 Syrian orphans. Warm meals were also served to 1,500 orphans while heaters and fuel were supplied to 6 schools serving 2,050 students in Northern Syria.

Orphaned children between the ages of 3 and 15 in the Syrian city of Tell Abyad received sweaters, trousers, jackets and shoes. Heaters and heating fuel were also supplied to 6 schools in the area serving a total of 2,050 students, including the Al-Sokariah primary and middle schools, Alatshana school, Kormaza school and Khirbet al-Raz school. In the neighboring Turkish governorate of Urfa, 50 Syrian refugee families received 2 heavy blankets each, and another 35 families received winter clothes for 100 children.

Baitulmaal’s executive director, Mazen Mokhtar, was on the ground in Turkey coordinating humanitarian efforts and delivering the much-needed aid. He said that many people in refugee camps have insufficient means to protect themselves against extreme weather, especially children, which is why his team were in the camps distributing warm meals and clothing as well as heaters to keep students warm at the schools. 

“To see the faces of children light up when they receive new shoes or a jacket is truly a heartwarming experience,” said Mokhtar. “I saw one girl who was injured in a bombing and thought to myself how fragile, yet strong, these children are. I’m thankful our donors enable us to deliver hope where it is needed.” 

According to the UN Refugee Agency, Syria has the largest displaced population in the world. More than 6 million people — including 2.5 million children — are displaced within Syria. Many displaced Syrians live in deplorable conditions owing to continued violence and escalating poverty. Tell Abyad, a Syrian city that shares a border with Turkey, has long been hotly contested and targeted during the now 10-year long conflict.

Baitulmaal recently delivered large floor mats and winter kits to Syrians in Idlib, four hours west of Tell Abyad, whose tents and belongings were impacted by severe winter weather. The charity also distributed bread for 94,677 meals to families facing food insecurity in Syria.

Winter Kits Distributed to 800 Beneficiaries Impacted by the Cold in Pakistan https://baitulmaal.org/winter-kits-distributed-to-800-beneficiaries-impacted-by-the-cold-in-pakistan/ Fri, 19 Feb 2021 18:56:57 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=88788

KARACHI, PAKISTAN, February 19, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently delivered winter kits to 800 villagers in rural Pakistan experiencing an unusually long period of cold this winter.

Warm clothes, shoes and blankets were distributed to 450 children, 150 women, and 200 men in rural villages in the Sindh province. These include Jati, Sawan Tharani, Salah Pusiyo, Khameeso Mallah, Abdullah Mallah, Liyar Jat, Hassan Mallah, and the Sujawal District.

According to meteorologists in the region, colder than usual temperatures were predicted, with some areas experiencing below freezing conditions. The colder, drier weather follows an extreme monsoon season and locust invasions which destroyed crops and displaced families last year. The situation was compounded by the coronavirus pandemic, which further impacted aid efforts.

Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal, said that many of the villagers were ill-equipped to withstand the cold.

“This year has been unseasonably cold in many regions,” Sohail said. “Many families in these villages needed shoes and jackets to protect against bone-chilling temperatures.”

Baitulmaal has been on the ground in some of the aforementioned villages digging water wells funded by donors in recent months. This enabled field workers to mobilize quickly to deliver the latest round of winter relief to affected communities.

IDLIB, SYRIA, February 12, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently delivered winter aid to 450 displaced families in northern Syria affected by severe winter storms.

Large floor mats and warm blankets were distributed to families in Maa’rat Masrin and surrounding camps near Idlib province where tens of thousands of displaced Syrian families have set up makeshift shelters in recent months. Torrential rains caused widespread flooding in the region, washing away food and belongings while strong winds ripped through tent settlements.

Baitulmaal, which had completed a round of winter aid in the camps a few months ago, mobilized quickly to reach those affected by the recent storms.

“What little belongings these families had were now soaked through and caked in mud,” said Elizabeth Sohail, programs manager at Baitulmaal. “It was crucial for us to provide them new blankets and items to keep them warm and dry through the rest of winter.”

According to Mark Cutts, the U.N.’s deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for Syria, at least 121,000 people were affected, 21,700 tents were destroyed, and one child was dead due to the storms. This contributes to what Cutts described as a “catastrophic situation” for Syrians already reeling from continuous conflict, freezing winter temperatures, and a relentless global pandemic.

In addition to winter aid, Baitulmaal also recently distributed bread for 94,677 meals to families facing food insecurity in Syria. Donors who would like to learn more or contribute to the emergency aid programs at Baitulmaal can visit their website at Baitulmaal.org.

Winter Aid Delivered to 1,526 Flood Victims in India https://baitulmaal.org/winter-aid-delivered-to-1526-flood-victims-in-india/ Mon, 08 Feb 2021 14:00:00 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=88666

BIHAR, INDIA, February 8, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently delivered winter aid to 1,526 individuals in India’s Araria district bordering Nepal in response to flooding in the area.

Winter blankets and food items such as rice were distributed to 285 families affected by last year’s monsoon rains, and were prioritized for widows, the elderly and needy families. 

According to Elizabeth Sohail, programs manager at Baitulmaal, the charity’s local partners identified families who had not yet received aid. Field workers followed COVID-19 protocols to ensure the aid was distributed safely to recipients in light of the pandemic.

“COVID-19 related issues caused some delays, but we acted swiftly to get aid to those left out in the cold and struggling with hunger,” said Sohail. “Thanks to our generous donors, we were able to get warm blankets and food to villagers affected by the floods.” 

Heavy flooding from monsoon rains left hundreds dead and millions displaced across South Asia last year. Flash floods continued to affect rural villages, leading to landslides, power outages, and destruction of homes, roads and bridges. In Bihar, India’s poorest state, approximately 8 million people were impacted and thousands were left homeless.

KARACHI, PAKISTAN, January 28, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently completed the construction of 10 new hand-pump wells providing water to over 2,600 individuals in villages in rural Pakistan.

Each well was funded by a generous Baitulmaal donor. Below is a list of villages and each corresponding dedication as well as the number of villagers who now have access to safe, clean water.

  • Jumu Mallah, in memory of Isahak Shaikh and Azimuhanisa Shaikh, accessible to 250 villagers.

“We are touched by the outpouring of support for well projects,” said Elizabeth Sohail, programs manager at Baitulmaal. “It’s incredible how we can come together to keep the clean water flowing.”

Earlier this month, Baitulmaal announced the completion of its first solar-powered, deep-water well in Yemen in a live-streamed event with Carson Caldwell, a cross-country cyclist who raised awareness for Yemen and in whose name the well was dedicated.

Winter Aid Delivered to 120 Families in Gaza https://baitulmaal.org/winter-aid-delivered-to-120-families-in-gaza/ Sat, 16 Jan 2021 14:00:00 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=88177

GAZA, PALESTINE, January 16, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently delivered winter aid to 120 families suffering from poverty in the Gaza Strip.

Families were identified to receive the aid based on their level of need and number of dependents. Priority was given to women-headed households or those with ill, disabled or special needs members. Each family was provided a winter kit that included a space heater, blankets, winter coats, hats, gloves, socks and shoes.

The aid comes at a particularly difficult time for Gazans who live in destroyed and dilapidated areas of Gaza, according to Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal.

“Winter is already a dreaded time of year for many Palestinians,” Sohail said. “We are working to ensure that the most vulnerable families are warm and dry as they try to survive winter during a global pandemic.”

The Gaza Strip is commonly referred to as the world’s largest open air prison by humanitarian observers. A restrictive travel ban, crippling economic blockade and continued conflict have propelled the poverty rate in Gaza to 56 percent according to the UN, with COVID-19 worsening an already dire situation. Two million Gazans have limited access to basic needs such as food, clean water, electricity and healthcare, and over 1 million now live under the poverty line.

Baitulmaal provides food, water, medicine and winter aid to people in Palestine. If you would like to learn more or contribute to the emergency aid programs at Baitulmaal, please visit their website at Baitulmaal.org.

New Solar-Powered Well Gives 3,015 Yemenis Clean Water https://baitulmaal.org/new-solar-powered-well-gives-3015-yemenis-clean-water/ Thu, 14 Jan 2021 22:00:00 +0000 https://baitulmaal.org/?p=88087

AL-HUDAIDAH, YEMEN, January 14, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently completed the construction of a solar-powered, deep-water well that provides clean water to 3,015 people in the Yahya Yousef village of Yemen’s Al-Hudaidah governorate.

The well, which is 120 meters deep, uses solar energy to power a pump that fills two 3,000 liter tanks. Approximately 450 families now have access to uncontaminated water through multiple taps at the base of the tanks. This enables them to fill jerry cans and bottles with clean water for drinking, washing and cooking.

The $25,000 well is the first one of its kind established by the charity in the region, according to  Elizabeth Sohail, programs manager at Baitulmaal.

“Water projects are really special to our hearts,” Sohail said. “This project will go on for a long time to bless family after family and generation after generation.”

In a live-streamed update on Baitulmaal’s relief efforts in Yemen, Sohail revealed that the well was dedicated in honor of Carson Caldwell, a cross-country cyclist who embarked on a journey from Pennsylvania to California to raise awareness about the Yemen humanitarian crisis and to raise funds for emergency aid efforts through Baitulmaal.

“You can just see the effect that something so simple like water can have to people who really need it,” Carson said during the event. “It’s beautiful to know that this charity, Baitulmaal, is in these places where it’s difficult to bring aid to certain parts of the world. It’s incredible to see the work being done in Yemen and it’s such an honor to be associated with it.”

In 2000, the World Bank stated that Yemen was experiencing a “dire and worsening water situation.” Since then, conflict, climate change, a cholera epidemic and a global pandemic have left the country’s residents, many of whom are internally displaced, even more vulnerable. According to the UN, over 80% of the population relies on humanitarian aid, and more than half of the population does not have access to clean water.

Since 2018, Baitulmaal has sent over $10.4 million in aid that provided meals, antibiotics, medical supplies, winter relief, water and hygiene kits to Yemen. If you would like to learn more or contribute to the emergency aid programs at Baitulmaal, please visit their website at Baitulmaal.org.
